UP IN THE AIR 1st BIRTHDAY

 

Complete event planning, concept design & styling.

 

The event styling brief was ‘something big, colourful and carnival-like’. As a result, guests were treated to one of the greatest shows in Melbourne. Welcomed by a 30m giant balloon garland that weaved over the driveway, house and over the floor of the backyard. Giant white cloud installation above the outdoor feature bar, and 7m long mini balloon garlands for the banquet tables. Also add 6 mini cloud clusters in the marquee, a balloon photo wall, balloon garland cake, mini balloon cupcake toppers.

The backyard was the carnival of all carnivals with a 3 cart Up In The Air themed dessert and candy stations, fairy floss and popcorn machines. Kids dining table and chairs with balloon party hats, ball pit, custom designed and made cloud piñata, kids entertainers, face painters, 7 piece band, 3 lounge settings and a double bar rounded out the details. All under the blue skies by day and festoon lit lights by night. Desserts included cupcakes with hand painted hot air balloon toppers, mint and oreo/orange bloom/vanilla marshmallows, cloud-shaped macarons, mini balloon topped mini cupcakes, cloud and hot air balloon cookies, mini donuts, sprinkled chocolate chards. Finally, even the banquet dining tables had the balloon treatment!
